Sets the name and value of the specified session cookie
When working with cookies, ensure the user experience complies with the protections of a user’s jurisdiction.
Compliance with privacy protections for cookies can include multiple strategies:
- Ensuring that a cookie notice is provided, and recommending that users read the cookie notice.
- Ensuring consistency between your cookie consent language and Salesforce’s privacy notices and policies.
- Consent to Salesforce (first-party) cookies that validate user identity are critical to use of the site. But, consent for them can't be taken to imply consent to third-party cookies.
- Consent to Salesforce partners' (third-party) analytics cookies must be acquired and tracked separately from consent to first-party cookies.
- Asking in a way that ensures the validity of a user’s active and explicit consent:
- Avoid pre-set, or checked, checkboxes for compliance.
- Don't construe that merely continuing to use the web service is consent.
- Allowing the user to withdraw their consent at any time, and for each category of cookie, depending on the cookie's purpose and origin (1st or 3rd party cookies).
- Periodically reminding the user that they consented to cookies, as well as what cookies they consented to.
- Not allowing cookie respawning without again collecting validated user consent.
This list is a start, but isn't exhaustive. Place cookie consent high in your list of functionalities to implement.
